First, the invalid memory exception is described here:


Because we have spoken before I have an inkling of what your up to so
I would require that you first check the NetworkExplorer servlet to see
how it behaves. If it is ok, I suspect you are not saving the NPA on a
server specific basis or performing the HTTP redirect properly.

Or it's possible that there is a bug in jCIFS but you would need to
provide more information about the steps necessary to reproduce.
